yeah you look like you know what your doing but i thiught i would add it just it case.


Actually I've got no bloody idea, making it up as I go along!

I took the angle grinder and reduced the thickness of the lip around the bulge so that when I glass over that it won't stick up as high...

Hey scotty have you pop riveted or screwed it down on the front and rear lips at all to hold it down? In the pic it just looks like you have, if so I take you'll pull them out after the sikaflex dries??

Yeah screwed down 3 in the front and 2 at the back to hold it in place while everything dries. It should stay in place with the sikaflex, but I don't wanna chance it.
After I've fibreglassed the top, I'll remove the bonnet then see if I can fibreglass it at all at the bottom too - just for extra strength. And paint the underside of the bonnet black as the white gets far too dirty.
And then I'll remove the screws.

Yeah I sanded for an hour last night and didn't make much difference. Got some more resin and that to finish it off. But I worked all day today so I'll leave it for tomorrow...

Not knocking your work, it looks good, but i can see exactly where its been grafted, has it been smoothed properly? Or is it just the pictures?
